Day 97 Parable of the hidden treasure and the pearl Matt. 13:44-46

Guided reflection: 

Jesus seems to be saying to hold dear to your heart any truth or insight on God’s love that might come your way.   A nugget of truth is like finding a buried treasure in the back yard… or going to garage sales and looking for a particular type of china and one day, after years of searching, find just what you need to complete your set!  Get the idea?  Between the lines I read two thoughts – one:  the sometimes the nuggets of truth are few and far between, so be patient and keep looking.  Two:  when you do find something precious, hold on to it, cherish it, celebrate it… for that matter, throw a party!  For what are you searching?   What has God done in your life that you need to celebrate?  Write me a note or send an email ( and I will do the dance of joy with you!  God is good… all the time!

Guided prayer:

“Right now, O God, I stop and just celebrate.  I have a grin on my face and I clap my hands with joy to know that you love me.  That I am not alone… that my sins are forgive… and that I am on a great adventure with you.  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your kingdom on earth.  Amen.”

(Maybe you can start a list of the “pearls” that have come your way… and celebrate!)
